American Robin

Our "robin red-breast" is found in woodlands and along woodland edges. It takes advantage of fruit-bearing trees or shrubs in the winter.

 

Yellowish bill, red to redish-orange breast, and white lower belly and undertail coverts. Male's head is darker than female's. 

 

Cup-shaped nest constructed from twigs, grass, and mud is placed in trees and is often easy to locate. Robins eat invertebrates and fruits.
